We're of the opinion that bike rides don't always have to be Lycra-clad or ultra-technical. When you're cruising around town or riding to work, more casual "kit" like the Club Ride Cog Men's Jeans may be better than bike shorts or DH pants. The jeans still have the stretch and mobility you'd expect in cycling bottoms, though, properties they owe largely to their construction of StretchRide212 -- denim and Lycra blend -- and design features like a seamless crotch gusset. The slightly higher NoCrackBack keeps things decent in the saddle, and a zippered side pocket secures your phone or other small essentials. The straight fit looks good on and off the bike, and the RideLight reflective accents on the side pocket, belt loops, and chain-side cuff help you stay seen when you're riding home in the dark.
